Oooh, I am smitten with those textured reds!
Yes, I had fun going through all the small bits of leather to make these colorful inlayed panels ,like how I've been going through my photos and making collages , the reds have bits of real ostrich skin,,,
I've got a piece of bumpy red leather that I recently came across in a stash of materials I'd forgotten about. It looks much like the one in your photo, though a bit marked up (soiled). I don't know what to do with it so I'm afraid it's destined for the Sally Ann. Though I have taken it out of the box once already...and put it back in. One woman's trash...
I'm very curious to see what comes of the far left piece. It's gorgeous.
I've finished these bags and I'll put them on theRL website soon,
